Scared by the list of Side Effects
OK so tomorrow my daughter will be starting Vyvanse. She has been on Concerta, Adderal, and is still currently on Strattera. Reading the list of possible side effects for Vyvance (and all the other ones she has been on) scares the crap out of me. I don’t want to stunt her height and weight. I don’t want her becoming more anxious and hearing voices. Will someone please reassure me that these meds actually work (because we haven’t seen improvement yet) and it’s worth the scare of putting your kids on psychotic drugs. I want what is best for my 7 year old. I want her to learn and do well enough in school. But I want to keep my happy, creative, and joyful girl too. Just feeling scared I guess. Any reassuring thoughts would be appreciated.
